Review SummaryThe Norwegian Dawn was our first cruise experience and we were not disappointed! Restaurants were quite varied, and if you don't mind the cover charge had some great food available (though the cover charge can get pricey for larger parties). Plenty of activities laid out in an absolutely WONDERFUL day planner which listed almost every activity by time, and denoted whether or not there were additional costs involved, seriously became our cruise bible. Lines to various events, help desks, or attractions were always manageable, didn't feel crowded at all during the trip except when it was raining and everyone was back inside. Wonderful art throughout the ship, most of it for sale at the auctions they do (picked up a few myself).
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
Always clean, always stocked, and a good sized ship. Beautiful art adorns much of the public areas, and not "motel art" either, but real inspiring art! Elevators can be a little tricky to snag during busy hours, but it wasn't really an issue. Takes you about 2 days to finally get a good grip on where everything is, but once you do you'll know the ship like the back of your hand.
Cabin / Stateroom
Pros: Always something to do, educational stuff as well. Good food in cover charge places
Cons: Almost always deafening music poolside, 24/7 food is flakey and room service doesn't always show, surprise $12/person/day charge at the end.
